Sometime in the last week or so, I had a disagreement with someone about the artist behind the song "Life's Been Good." I was insistent that it was a Steve Miller Band song and the other party was convinced it was not, but was unable to come up with an alternative name. As I can be fairly, ahem, confident, of my own prowess when it comes to music trivia, I ended the conversation leaving no doubt that I was in fact correct.

Well other party, I learned this evening that "Life's Been Good" is in fact, a Joe Walsh song. The trouble is that I cannot for the life of me remember the circumstances of the conversation, nor who I was arguing with. So I'm just sending this confession that I was wrong out to the universe, in the hopes that next time I insist that I am right, karma doesn't bite me back.

Waaaaay back in the day, it was said "Life's Been Good" was loosely based upon Rod Stewarts early days in rock....(shrugs shoulders)...perhaps that was just "dj banter" that suckered me in....????
